1.5 ounces of 40% alcohol is equal to 12 ounces of 5% alcohol. So no they are both the same.
Not by volume, but one beer is the same as one drink for determining your sobriety. One drink's worth of beer is 12 ounces (one can/bottle), while one drink's worth of liquor is 1.5 ounces (one shot). And some beers are stronger than others, as much as 4 times. Beer also has more calories, thats why models drink vodka, it gets you drunk faster and not fat.
Liquor contains far more alcohol per unit of volume than beer. A typical beer is somewhere around 5% alcohol, whereas liquor typically contains over 40%. This means it takes much less liquor to get intoxicated(drunk) vs beer. Liquor also dehydrates the body more because of the higher alcohol content. Beer contains a large amount of water and therefore helps combat this effect.
Rule of thumb: Multiply the volume in ounces by the percentage of alcohol in the drink. 60 is one drink. ex. jigger of standard (80 proof) liquor: 1.5 oz. X 40 % = 60. So 1 oz. X 50% = 50, or 5/6 of a drink. Whether or not this is equal to the beer depends on the alcohol content of the beer. The standard is 5%. For 1 12oz. beer X 5% = 60 or one drink.
It depends on what type of beer or wine it is and who brewed it. There's no exact measure but if you want a generalized average, beer generally is around 5% ABV (which in this case a can of beer will contain more than a shot [in the US a shot is about 1.5 fluid ounces]).
wine has alcohol. it can cause alcoholismjust as beer and liquor can cause Alcoholism. If you look at it from a genetic aspect, then technically wine cannot make someone more prone to alcoholism, but if you are genetically predisposed to alcoholism then yes, wine could trigger the alcoholism just as beer and liquor could.
Switching between beer, wine and liquor will make a person more impaired than sticking to one type of alcohol.A. TrueB. False
A "standard" drink in the United States contains 0.6 ounces of alcohol. That is roughly equivalent to one 12-oz. beer, one 4 oz. glass of wine, or one shot of 80 proof liquor. Beyond that, it depends on the drink and the bartender.
In general there is about 1% more alcohol in an ice beer then a comparable one.
Beer is a fermented grain-based beverage with generally 5-10% alcohol content by weight/volume. There are many different types of beer, ranging from full-bodied to light to herbal and fruit-based. Liquor is a distilled fermented beverage with generally 25% or higher alcohol content by weight/volume. There are also many different types of liquor. Additionally, liquors are more commonly used in mixed drinks, where beers are typically consumed without mixing in additional ingredients or flavors.
